Making 500 horsepower with a junkyard LS takes very little work, and gives huge return on investment when it comes to smiles. When you add an American Powertrain TKX 5-speed swap to the mix, you’ve got a 7500 rpm plus capable stick shift combo that will do insane burnouts, run like a banshee and sound like a million bucks too. I mean what’s not to love here? Watch the video, enjoy the burnouts, and have some fun being inspired.
